About Vicky Cook

As women approach their late 30s and move through their 40s, many begin to feel stuck in their lives.  They’re unfulfilled, stressed out, lacking purpose, and wondering what happened.  They’re not where they want to be professionally or personally and they don’t know what to do about it.

Welcome to your midlife crisis!  Yes, women go through this rite of passage just like men.  But, unlike men, we don’t necessarily want to reclaim our youth.  We want to embrace our lives now, but we’ve lost track of who we are and what we really want.  

That’s where I come in as a Midlife Crisis Coach for Women.  I believe as women transition through this phase, they come alive.  I prefer to think of this process as their Midlife Awakening.  I help women find their purpose, renew their passions, beef up their confidence, and restart their lives.  This might mean a series of small changes or a complete overhaul (spoiler alert: you get to decide this!).

I can help you walk this path because I’ve been through it all myself.  I know the feelings of frustration of wanting more but not knowing where to start.  I know the bumpy ride down the road to learning to love myself exactly as I am right now.  I know the fear that comes with facing the unknown when starting something new at 40+ years old.  I also know the beauty that awaits on the other side and my passion is to help other women see that beauty in their own lives.

I got into coaching because I love helping people chase their dreams and think about their lives from a different perspective.  I targeted women going through the sluggish midlife years because I’m passionate about empowering women to discover their gifts, beauty, and limitless possibilities that already exist within themselves and their lives.

Just like you, I did what I was supposed to do.  I graduated from high school, went to a good college, graduated with honors, and accepted a job at an amazing company.  I worked my way up the corporate ladder and got married.  Then, in my mid 30’s and divorced, I felt disconnected from the life I had built for myself.  I couldn’t understand why because I’d done everything I was *supposed* to do!  But, I was restless, frustrated, and unfulfilled.  I lived for the weekends and I didn’t want that for the rest of my life.  So, I woke up and started doing the work to get to know the real me - not the one that was meeting everyone else’s expectations.  Through that work, I fell in love with who I am and embarked on a new career path and a new life.

My mission is to help women fall in love with themselves, get out of their own way, and start living the life they crave.

Vicky Cook Success Stories

Overcoming Fears & Believing In Herself

"She came to my life at a time when I really didn’t know where I was going. I had just taken a big step away from the path I was "supposed“ to be on and struggled to find my way. While I had hopes and dreams, I didn’t believe in either them or in myself. I was full of self-doubt and fear. And then Vicky stepped in and our calls completely changed my life and the way I look at things. More importantly, it changed the way I look at myself. Through all the ups and downs, Vicky was there for me. There were weeks I was so looking forward to meet up that I couldn’t help myself but count the hours until it was time for our call. Because of our work I now feel confident in my own abilities, I learned to step up to my fears and I never felt as happy and comfortable in my own skin as I do now." ~ Ronja  |  Germany

Finding Passion, Setting Goals and Making It Happen

"I was going through a huge transition stage in my life; the advice friends had given me was to find my passion and work with that. The problem was I had no clue what my passion was! Everything had changed for me, I spent most of my life focusing on and helping others and taking care of me just got lost in the shuffle. Vicky is a delight to work with, she is very caring and easy to speak with. Her questions and comments are insightful, helping me to sort through and identify what my passion was, to set the goal and learn how to break it down into manageable steps. Vicky has a very kind and approachable way about her and it was a joy to work with her." ~ Patty  |  Georgia

Removing Blocks Little By Little

"Working with Vicky has been a true pleasure. I’m starting my business and Vicky has helped me unblock barriers that have been holding me back. She quickly pinpoints the core of a situation and does not fail to leave me with helpful understanding or a question to consider. I find that in every session I get an AHA moment that I never thought about. In the few months that we have worked together I’m finding that my blocks are, little by little, going away. I’m so grateful to be working with Vicky. For anyone that is considering a life coach, I highly recommend Vicky. She has truly found her gift in helping people find their way to a better life!" ~ Judy  |  Connecticut
